My search for solitude - seeking time alone with thoughts and away from everyday demands - is found walking in nature among trees or on a secluded beach at sunrise.
The society I seek is the company of trees, birds, and ocean waves. Looking at a solitary tree or a tree inhabiting a space in the society of neighboring flora and fauna reflects our lived experience of aloneness and community.
This recent series of oil paintings was inspired by my cherished time spent in nature.
